Nottingham Forest vs Derby County Live Stats & Betting Odds

Nottingham Forest News and Form – Will Forest return to winning ways in front of their home supporters?

Nottingham Forest have made a strong start to their season, sitting nicely in fifth place on 25 points. Sabri Lamouchi’s men have won half of their 14 matches, drawing four and losing three of the other seven.

After falling to back-to-back defeats which saw Forest slip out of the top six, last weekend’s win over Luton Town was a vital one for the Reds. Lewis Grabban and Sammy Ameobi were the scorers in the 2-1 victory at Kenilworth Road.

Before losing 2-1 to Hull City at the City Ground at the end of last month, Nottingham Forest had won five and drawn one of six home league and cup matches, including a 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Derby. Can the Reds get back to winning ways on home soil at the weekend?

Key-Facts – Nottingham Forest vs Derby County

  • Forest have won five of their last seven on home soil
  • Derby have not won on the road since August
  • The Rams are four points behind the Reds in the Championship table


Derby County News and Form – Can the Rams pick up a rare away win?

Derby County have not won away from home in the Championship since beating Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium on the opening weekend of the season. Since then, the Rams have picked up just three points from a possible 18 on their travels.

Last weekend, though, Derby beat Middlesbrough 2-0 at Pride Park, with Tom Lawrence helping himself to a brace. In fact, Phillip Cocu’s team have won four on the spin at Pride Park.

Derby are down in 15th place at the moment after an indifferent start to their Championship campaign. Their away form will be a concern for Cocu, but can County cause an upset at the home of their rivals this Saturday?

Nottingham Forest vs Derby County Predictions

Nottingham Forest win: Last weekend’s narrow victory at Luton was just what the doctor ordered for Forest after successive defeats at Wigan Athletic and at home to Hull. Lamouchi has made an excellent impact at the City Ground since his arrival in the summer, and Forest will be looking for a top six finish at the very least this season.

Derby have struggled in recent meetings with Forest, failing to score in each of the last four. I can see Nottingham Forest keeping another clean sheet against the Rams on Saturday. The home team are available at 11/4 to win to nil.

The Reds have won nine times in all competitions this season, scoring the opening goal in eight of those. You can get the decent odds of 8/11 for Forest to score first in this East Midlands derby at the weekend.
